    Kidney stones are build up of calcium in the kidneys due to either a) genetics or b)lack of water intake.

    They have to pass unless they are too large and will cause massive damage. Hospitals can usually break them apart with high powered ultrasound waves, but sometimes they can pass on their own.

    Drink LOTS of water and try and tolerate the pain. It is excurciatingly painful though. Good luck

    Just reading your dads symptoms the first thing that came into my head was kidney stones.I never have personally experienced them but my husband has and has had surgery to break them up.As a matter of fact he’s been fighting off symptoms himself for the last 2 weeks.Once they form chances are that you will have more form down the road.I’m going to suggest that you visit this site,www.webmd.com and type in the search bar kidney stones.It will show you a lot of info on this.It’s said the pain of kidney stones can be like the pain of child birth.I hope this helps you out and gives you the info that your looking for.

    I have a friend from a free online dating site who is suffering from many small kidney stones and to date she is having a hard time peeing.

    I hope your dad is okay by this time. It’s really hard when a love one is sick. I also have a friend at the free adult dating site who suffers from this.
